SC ruling 'tight slap' for Modi: Kejriwal

Share

"On the basis of Supreme Court's Judgement, I assumed my Duty today and going back tomorrow to Arunachal Pradesh to meet people over there and do developmental activities in the state", he told ANI here.

In a big blow for BJP but a big win for democratic federalism, yesterday the Supreme Court directed a status quo ante in Arunachal Pradesh as it prevailed on December 15, 2015.

Earlier on July 13, a five-judge Supreme Court bench quashed the President's rule imposed in Arunachal Pradesh and all the decisions taken by the Governor leading to its imposition.

Talking to a TV channel, he said "The Centre has nothing to do with this case". Now, the Supreme Court has given relief. Soon after, Arunachal Pradesh was placed under President's Rule in January.

On Dec 9, Governor had fixed the resolution removing the Speaker from the office as the first item of business, which was held outside the assembly hall on December 16. It also played on the fact that whether the governor had the power to call a special session of the assembly without the consent of the cabinet.

Tuki described the judgment as a "historic verdict" and said the ruling would help protect "healthy democracy" in the country. Congress sources say that they are willing to even talk to Pul and find a way to work together.

"SC judgment yet another tight slap on dictatorial Modi govt. Hope Modi ji wud learn n now stop interfering in democratically elected govts", Kejriwal tweeted. Sibal also demanded that there be a thorough probe into the alleged taped conversations of BJP leaders with a businessman conspiring to topple the Congress government in the state with the same "alacrity" as one initiated against Harish Rawat in Uttarakhand. BJP, however, said it does not see the development as a setback for the BJP.

Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad, answering a barrage of questions at a media briefing, at the same time said the judgement by the apex court was "supreme" and that government was studying the "implications" of the verdict.

The Nabam Tuki-led Congress government was dismissed following days of turmoil after 21 of its 47 lawmakers rebelled against the chief minister.

Success in review petitions not guaranteed as it goes before same Bench.

Pul can stake claim to form government with support of BJP.

The Congress is fully aware that it does not have the numbers to form the government. There is no threat to our government.
